Outfit Post – Fashion Blogger Shopping Dream

I recently got the lovely opportunity to shop on BlackBetty Website. For those who have never heard of BlackBetty, it is an online retailer that sells high street fashion pieces and accessories at affordable prices. I must confess, I was very surprised to find see how affordable high street fashion was on the BlackBetty website. The website is like the home of fashion bargain. It is a Fashion Blogger shopping dream.

Shopping on BlackBetty was simple. The website was straightforward and quite easy to navigate. I was done shopping within minutes because I found the pieces I wanted quickly.

Here are some of the items I got from my mini shopping spree. I will be featuring the other pieces in upcoming outfit posts so lookout for them.

The oversized cardigan and the blue long sleeve sweater are new wardrobe additions from BlackBetty. I really both pieces especially the oversized cardigan. The design is beauty and colours on the cardigan are so pretty. This blue sweater is a wardrobe essential which I like because they always come in handy, especially on lazy fashion days.

All other pieces and accessories I have on have been featured on Fashion and Style Police a couple of times. So my regular fashionistas would recognise them. But for those who do not, I shall list the stores I got them from below.

I always shop for new pieces and accessories that would complement my existing wardrobe. That way, I can style them in different ways to create a new look.

What do you think of this look? Please sound off in the comments section below.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the sunny weekend.

Preserving Memories Through Photography

When I was younger, I hated having my pictures taken. It just felt weird. I was like this until I got into university for my first degree. Anyone that knew me well enough then knew I hated taking photographs with me in it. I gradually grew out of this and started loving photography. Now that I think of it, I think it’s all down to confidence. I didn’t feel confident enough to pose and take a photo. I felt I never looked good in them, so I avoided photography completely. Which is so weird to think of now as I am a blogger and take photographs almost everyday.

I love that my kids like taking pictures. They have loved the camera right from when they were babies. They are always camera ready. And they never get tired of taking selfies on any phone they can lay their little hands on. That could be because they are forever watching me taking photos, so they are mirroring that act right back. Which is why we have to be cautious of how we live our lives around our children because they are paying attention.

CanvasChamp

I recently came across CanvasChamp online and I got this canvas done. For those who have never heard of CanvasChamp, they offer premium quality Canvas Prints at the lowest price in the UK. It is a great brand with the most amazing service. I found their website very easy to navigate. Placing this order was very straightforward.

I have been dying to get some my pictures printed and some framed. So I was very happy to get my hands on some CanvasChamp Canvas Prints to decorate the house and preserve some memories. I got this Canvas Print some days ago, and it will be going into the kids room. Preserving memories through photography is definitely the way to go. Which is why I plan to get some more Canvas Prints.

The twins were few days old in this photo. We took it at the hospital during one of their many snoozes. I love the shot a lot. They look like they are having a proper conversation. It is such a cute photograph.

One thing I love about being a blogger is the fact that I get to take lots of pictures. Discovering CanvasChamp has been a blessing because their prints are super affordable. And they deliver them very quickly too, which is great customer service. I know I will be using their service again and again.

Do you get to preserve your memories through photography? How often do you get your photos printed and framed? Please sound off in the comments section.

How to Get People to Read Your Blog

Growing my readership was perhaps one of the most challenging aspects of blogging. You create content to have it read by many people but when the readers are not forthcoming, it’s almost natural to be tempted to think that starting a blog was a waste of time. So how do you get people to read your blog?

Believe me, I’ve been there too. It took a lot of willpower to keep going especially when my analytics showed zero views. But over the years I got better and refined my process. Now I have thousands of readers stopping by every week.

If your blog is at the early stages and you need some help to get the number of visitors up, here are some tips you can start with.

 

Share your blog posts on social media

I know that you’ve heard this before and even tried it. But the reason why this does not work for most people is that they passively share their posts on social media.

Whenever you want to share your blog post on social media leave a little description of what your ideal readers will take away from reading your blog post. Simply just sharing your blog post on social media is not enough to ignite curiosity in your ideal readers and motivate them to check the link. You need to leave a caption that would get them clicking. Also, remember to use the right hashtags. You can get more tips from my blogging book – How to Cash In as a Blogger, available exclusively on Amazon.

 

Join Facebook groups that help promote blog posts

Just like you there are thousands of bloggers looking for readers. These bloggers joined together to form a community with the aim of helping each other grow.

Run a quick search on Facebook for blogging groups that help promote blogs. Once you find some, join in and share your blog posts. But don’t be selfish. Make sure you also participate in promoting other members’ blog posts as well and stick to the group rules as you do so.

 

Collaborate with other bloggers to get people to read your blog

You’ve probably guessed by now that you can’t grow your readership on your own. You need the help of other people to help you get more readers. Look for bloggers who have better numbers than you in terms of views and engagement and ask if you could cross-promote each other.

Another alternative is to work on a joint blog post or interview the blogger who is doing better than you and ask them to share that post with their readers. This will help direct their readers to your blog.

Ask people to read your blog post

Most times it can be really nerve-racking to ask your friends and family to read your blog post. Or to have them share it with their friends. But all that is coming from a wrong mindset. The truth is that once you ask someone to read your blog post it creates momentum to ask another.

Reach out to your friends: send them an email or message and ask them to read your blog post and encourage them to share their thoughts in the comments. Don’t forget to ask them to share your blog post with their friends. If you don’t ask, you don’t get!

 

I am currently offering social media promotion packages to bloggers and small businesses, so do send me an email for more information – fashionandstylepolice@gmail.com
